Here at We Are Handsome we often have the absolute pleasure of travelling around the world following an endless summer. With travel comes the valuable experience of seeing other cultures and ways of life. It genuinely broadens the mind and provides you with experiences to grow from as a person. One of the most valuable lessons I have learnt from travelling especially in third world countries, is not to take for granted our way of life back home. When faced with the reality of the immense poverty; 1.4 billion people struggle on a day to day basis to provide the basic human needs in life, it certainly puts things into perspective and little worries become instantly trivial.
It has also provoked the humanitarian within me and in my day to day efforts from fashion, blogging to teaching, I try to do my part by being informed of the current global climate and all that it encompasses from politics, economics, wars and famine. Having family whose background is from a third world country, the issue of extreme poverty and inequality is one I am an advocate for.
